Bite Beauty Sweet Cream Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “muted peach.” It’s a muted, medium coral rose with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque coverage with a slightly thinner consistency compared to other shades in the range, and it pulled at the lips slightly (but the color still went on smoothly). This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Topanga (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Givenchy Brun Createur (103) (P, $36.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Nectar (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Chablis (P, $24.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Misbehaved (49) (P, $50.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar).

Bite Beauty Persimmon Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as an “intense red-orange.” It’s a bright, medium red-orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented with one-stroke coverage that applied with smooth, even color. The consistency was firm in the tube, enough that there is a light pull as it is applied directly to the lips, though the color itself doesn’t drag. On me, the color lasted for over six hours, left a strong stain behind, and was very lightly hydrating overall. Tarte Mai Tai (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Estee Lauder Volatile (P, $30.00) is darker, less glossy (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Lady Ruba (P, $26.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Bite Beauty #008 (LE, $36.00) is brighter (95% similar).

Formula Overview

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is supposed to have “bold, creamy color” with “extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear.” The majority of the range is very pigmented–typically opaque with one pass–with a few shades being semi-opaque but usually buildable. All 34 shades are shimmer-free and vary being a soft satin finish to a natural finish (light shine but not glossy). The consistency is very lightly creamy to lightly creamyu with some shades requiring light-medium pressure and can pull the lip a bit when gliding it across the lips, though the color doesn’t appear ragged and the bullet itself doesn’t feel stiff (while other shades applied without tugging, so check individual shade reviews!) The majority of the shades I’ve tested have been lightly hydrating to non-drying and fairly comfortable to wear for the long-haul. They wear longer than average, from four to eight hours, depending on the intensity and propensity of the shade to stain.

In comparison to the Luminous Creme formula: The level of color payoff and lemony scent are the two things that are similar, but they feel quite different on. If you have drier lips and need the intense hydration that the Luminous Creme formula offered, I don’t know if you’re going to like these. The Luminous Creme formula had a thicker consistency with a very creamy texture that glided on and never tugged at all, and the thicker consistency paired with the glossier finish was more forgiving on lips as it didn’t emphasize lines, natural texture, dryness, or flaking. Some had issues with the Luminous Creme formula bleeding/feathering and shorter-wear due to the amount of slip (high), and the Amuse Bouche formula has much, much less slip, so the wear is longer. I didn’t typically experience bleeding/feathering with the Luminous Creme formula, and that is also true with Amuse Bouche, but I would expect less with this more satin-finish formula for most (but not all). The scent seemed slightly stronger in the Amuse Bouche range, but it wasn’t noticeable after I was done applying the color.
